IE standing in a doorway and will not move after being asked to move is it a violation of any Arizona state laws to attempt to push them aside? Also after attempting to push them aside is it a violation of the law for them to assault you and place you in a chokehold.
While you could potentially be guilty of assault criminally, you could potentially argue you had no choice but to touch the alleged victim in order to facilitate your escape from the situation (provided, of course, it was your only means of egress). Assaulting you and placing you in a chokehold...Read more »

I would hope if you are posting here that you have already contacted law enforcement and they were of no assistance. If not, you should contact the law enforcement agency for the jurisdiction and file a criminal complaint.
If law enforcement involvement does not resolve your issue, you will...Read more »
I was long formed for shoplifting given a court date I went in and told the judge not guilty they assigned me another telephonic court date in which the County attorney presented information to me and gave me options one would include a plea and I don't understand any of it and I asked if a...

You always have the right to an attorney meaning at any point you can consult or hire a lawyer. You are only entitled to have the court appoint an attorney for you if you are indigent and the punishment may involve the loss of liberty. In some courts, the judge will appoint an attorney any time...Read more »
Your question does not make sense. If you have a legitimate question, I would suggest you attempt to express it in such a way that the attorneys on Justia are able to provide you with a response. Have a great 2021!
A warrant is still a warrant no matter how old it is and you can be arrested at any point until you resolve the warrant. Does this mean you will definitely be arrested the second you step foot in Tennessee? No, but you are at risk whenever you have any contact whatsoever with law enforcement. If...Read more »
You can ask for a court appointed lawyer at your court date listed on the Traffic Ticket and Complaint. You will then be asked to provide the court with your financial information so the court can determine whether you are indigent. Many courts will not appoint a public defender unless the State...Read more »
A Motion for Extension of time can be contested; however, if it is "unopposed" that means the State of Arizona already sought the other side's position and did not object or did not timely object. Typically, a judge will grant an extension even if opposed unless there is good reason...Read more »
One of the detectives on a murder case is the blood related first cousin of one of the suspects or persons of interest. They have conversations regarding said case, some on the record some off. Is this a conflict of interest because of the family relation? Thank you in advance!
"Conflict of interest" in the legal sense is different from the common way the phrase is used. I presume what you really want to ask is "can I get the detective in trouble / thrown off the case because I think their cousin killed my friend?" The short answer is probably not. The...Read more »
In light of Arizona Prop 207 legalizing possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana for individuals over 21, the prosecutor should agree to dismiss. Do NOT plead guilty to possession of marijuana. You should privately consult an attorney who can help discuss further.
A week ago she attempted suicide and no one told the people caring for her about this. Im not sure what I can do I feel like if I call CPS or even the police my family may lie. This maybe her only chance to get help and I feel like they will try to discredit me.
If something happens to her and you did not report it, you will have to live with that. If you believe your daughters are being truthful and if you believe they will share what your niece told them with investigators, then I feel you have a duty to report the situation and let the chips fall where...Read more »
More facts are needed to analyze your situation. Arizona is an at will employment state, meaning you can be terminated for any reason or no reason at all. The only protection you can usually get from a legal standpoint is if the termination is based on your race, religion, sex, etc.
Firearm in my now residential state of Arizona. The p.o.w. charge was for a knife with knuckle holes laying in the back of my truck. Said knife is not illegal in Arizona so would that fall under state misdemeanor?
It sounds like you are referencing a fourth degree weapons charge. That is a class A misdemeanor in New York, punishable by up to 364 days in jail. Since the crime you were convicted of does not carry the potential for incarceration over one year, you should be able to pass a background check. If...Read more »
The elements of the crime of Sexual Abuse in Arizona (A.R.S 13-1404), regarding minors, depends on the age of the particular minor. If the minor is fifteen or more years of age, then sexual abuse is committed when the accused, without consent engages in sexual contact with the minor. Sexual contact...Read more »
My felony dangerous drug case has been going on for 1 1/2 yrs and out of five public defender's who all quit due to "conflict of interest" on their part, has not one of them even asked me about the case or wanted to discuss it so now the other day my public defender texts me telling... Read more »
You need to contact your attorney in writing, via email, and ask to sit down to discuss everything. Before the meeting you should request copies of your discovery (police reports, and any evidence the state intends to use to support their case at trial). The attorney should then walk you through...Read more »
I found jewelry in trash found at curb. (I find so much on curbs and make money selling it on FB marketplace) Took it to coin shop to see if it was gold. I got $182 for it. Fast forward. I took it to trial and was found guilty by jury. Gods honest truth I did not steal it nor did I know it was... Read more »
You can be CHARGED with anything. The State will still have to prove your guilt. If you were in possession of stolen goods, the prosecutor will assume you're guilty. Only the COURT offers you the presumption of innocence, the prosecutor is not so bound.
That is actually the case number, not the charge. I'm not sure though county the case is in, but I am guessing "FE" stands for "felony". If that is correct, then at least one of the charges (there could be more than one) is fairly serious.
Capture video evidence and call 911. After you have contacted 911, you may, if safe to do so, request the parties stop damaging your property and leave. While Arizona law does allow citizens to use physical force in a reasonable manner to stop theft or damage to personal property, it is an...Read more »
